A man is in custody after police say he was charged with his seventh DUI offense following a Delaware crash.

Delaware State Police say on Wednesday, just after 2:00 PM, troopers were dispatched to a crash on County Seat Highway, east of Fire Tower Road. Once on scene, troopers say they located a man laying on his side with his leg trapped in his moped. Authorities report that they then noticed an odor of alcohol while speaking to 54-year-old Bruce Williams Jr. 

According to the report, a DUI investigation revealed that the Laurel man had six previous DUI convictions, making this his seventh offense.

Williams was charged with seventh offense dui after six prior offenses, driving after judgment prohibited, driving while suspended or revoked, failure to have insurance identification in possession, operation of an unregistered motor vehicle, and fictitious tags.

He was later committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $41,503 cash only bond.
